On July 1, 2024, Hasmeena Kathuria, MD, will join the Division of Allergy, Pulmonary and Critical Care faculty,
and succeed Michael Fiore, MD, MPH, MBA, professor emeritus, as the director of the Center for Tobacco Research and Intervention (UW-CTRI) at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (UW SMPH).
A pulmonary, critical care and sleep medicine physician from the Boston University School of Medicine, Dr. Kathuria was the founding director of the Boston Medical Center’s Tobacco Treatment Center, which included establishing both outpatient and inpatient treatment programs to help patients stop smoking.
“I am excited and motivated to advance the efforts of UW-CTRI and work with the center’s incredible members,” she says. “UW-CTRI has been the impetus for the development of our program at Boston Medical Center and my work thus far. I am dedicated to continuing its legacy and to fostering the generation of exemplary leaders in the field.”
